How Long an Oil Change Takes

Despite how essential they are to the overall health of your car, oil changes are actually a quick and simple procedure. All in all, they take roughly 30 to 45 minutes to complete.

The goal of an oil change is to equip your car—and its engine—with clean and healthy oil. Over time, the motor oil has likely accumulated a significant amount of dirt and buildup that can lead to potential engine and vehicle damage.

So, in the process of an oil change, that dirty oil will first need to be drained. Then, the oil filter will need to be replaced, and finally, clean and clear oil will need to be reinserted.

Now, you may be in for other services with your regular oil change, but that service alone will have you in and out the door in no time!

How Often You Need an Oil Change

Ideally, you’ll need to keep an eye on your oil health over time to know when an oil change is needed. Luckily, there are some easy signs that should let you know, such as:

  • Strange noises from the engine
  • Burning oil smell
  • Decline in fuel efficiency
  • Additional engine issues

If you notice any of these signs or any other reason to believe your oil level is low, you should seek service right away.

Depending on the make, model, and year of your car, it should also be equipped with an oil level gauge to tell you exactly when an oil change is necessary.
